The Roanoke Rapids Police Department is seeking the public’s help in a case at Walmart.

Lieutenant Charles Vaught said the police department is investigating the theft of tire shine which occurred Friday around 6:30 p.m.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Vaught at 252-533-2819.

Callers may also call the police department at 252-533-2810 or Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.




Chief Chuck Hasty reported the following:


On Monday at approximately 9 a.m.  Lieutenant J. Baggett arrested Belinda Lynn Burr, 47, of Roanoke Rapids, on outstanding warrants for breaking and entering and larceny after breaking and entering.  

She was arrested at a residence in the 1000 block of Jefferson Street without trouble.  

The charges stem from an investigation by the Hertford County Sheriff’s Office.

She received a $2,000 bond and September 13 court date in Hertford County.

On Monday at approximately 12:15 p.m. Shaunda T. Campbell, 36, of Roanoke Rapids, came to the police department to surrender on two counts of identity theft.  

She received a $5,000 bond and October 4 court date.

The charges stem from an investigation by Williams reported last month.  

The victim reported when they filed their taxes in February they were supposed to receive a refund via a preloaded debit card.

When the victim received the card the full amount was not loaded.

During the investigation it was discovered the card had already been used  at several places.

Williams confirmed Campbell was a tax preparer but declined to immediately name the company she worked with as the matter is still under investigation and more arrests are expected.

Williams said Campbell reportedly used the card at ATM machines. He declined to discuss how much money was withdrawn.

On Tuesday at approximately midnight, Officer A. Green conducted a traffic stop for a violation on East Tenth Street near Georgia Avenue.

Green determined Cody Daryl Ballero, 22, of Roanoke Rapids, did not have a valid license and was in possession of narcotics and paraphernalia.  

Green arrested and charged Ballero with possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and no operator’s license.

He received a $2,500 bond and September 6 court date.

Sergeant M. Moseley and Master Officer G. Morris assisted.

On Tuesday at approximately 2 p.m., Vaught and officers D. Hundley and M. Hunsucker responded to a breaking and entering in progress call in the 1300 block of Washington Street.

The back door of the residence was open.

When Hundley and Hunsucker entered the residence to do a safety check, Cornell Travis Pender, 31, of Scotland Neck,  attempted to leave but was detained by Vaught.

Pender was arrested and charged with breaking and entering.

He received a $1,000 bond and August 30 court date.

On Tuesday at approximately 5:30 p.m., Officer J. Fortier arrested Christopher Anthony Vincent, 55, of Gaston, on outstanding warrants for possession of cocaine out of Northampton County.  

Vincent was arrested in the 200 block of Smith Church Road without trouble.

He received a $2,000 bond and September 28 court date.

The charges stem from an investigation by the Northampton County Sheriff’s Office.
